1. Setting up Pegasus Mail

1. When you first open Pegasus Mail, the Setup Wizard starts automatically to help you configure your email account. If you have previously used Pegasus to access a different email account, you can start the Setup Wizard manually by clicking on [File], then selecting [Network configuration...] and clicking on the button Start Setup Wizard. You can then proceed to step 3 below. If you are running the Setup Wizard for the first time, it presents you with a welcome screen on which you can choose whether you want to set up Pegasus for one or more users.

2. On the Setup Information screen, you are presented with the directory where Pegasus will store your email related files. You may safely accept the default value suggested. Click OK.

3. On the following screen, just click on Next to proceed.

4. You will be prompted for your email address. Type in your email address and click Next.

5. You will be prompted for the address of your POP3 server. This is not applicable to Nexus accounts; you will have to enter server settings by an alternative method later. Therefore, click on Skip at this point.

6. The next screen will prompt you for the address of your SMTP server. This is the server your account uses to send rather than receive mail. Enter smtp.ox.ac.uk and click on Next.

7. If you connect to the Internet through a college or departmental network, via broadband or a wireless connection, select Network on the following screen. If you use a dialup modem, select Dialup. Click Next.

8. On the final screen of the Setup Wizard, click Finish.

Before you can use Pegasus to send and receive emails through your Nexus account, you need to enter additional information on your server and secure the connection. To do so, proceed to section 2.
